In order to strengthen the ongoing processes in the lead up to UNISPACE+50 and to address the thematic priority focusing on global health, with the aim to identify gaps, needs, opportunities and recommendations for inclusion into the report prepared for UNISPACE+50 on this thematic priority, it was agreed that a dedicated flagship event is needed during 2017 to review and consider space cooperation for global health related activities, and to bring together the space and the global health communities to also explore potential future projects and collaborations. UNOOSA, WHO and Switzerland have therefore agreed to cooperate in organizing this Conference.
